German translation:Chromatbeschichtetes Aluminium (Alodine)
Explanation:
I did find a number of references that indicate that Alodine is a trademark. Apparently the alodining leaves the aluminum with an iridescent yellow sheen.

What is alodining?
Alodining is the chemical application of a protective chromate conversion coating on aluminum.
Why would anyone want to alodine aluminum?
1. It provides good corrosion protection. It even protects when scratched. Alodined 2024 aluminum withstands salt spray 150-600 hours before forming white corrosion. Untreated 2024 corrodes in less than 24 hours.
2. It provides an excellent electrically conductive surface. This helps to provide good electrical bonding in an airframe.
3. Paint sticks to it extremely well. In some cases, it can substitute for primer.
